  • Higley High selected as finalist for Best STEM School by Super Bowl Committee


    Higley High School is one of 11 schools selected as finalists for best STEM school by the Arizona Super Bowl Committee. The honor came as part of the Super Bowl Committee’s goal to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in Arizona.

    “Super Bowl provides a great platform to elevate the importance of STEM curriculum in Arizona schools. We are honored to partner with Freeport-McMoRan to recognize STEM excellence and showcase 49 STEM Superheroes from around the state,” said Jay Parry, President and CEO of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. “These Superheroes give Arizona youth an invaluable foundation to foster their future success and that’s truly a lasting legacy.”

    There were 49 finalists selected from nearly 200 nominations in various categories:

    Best STEM School, Most Innovative STEM Club and Most Dedicated STEM Teacher. Higley High is also the only Gilbert school selected as a finalist and one of only three from the East Valley.

    Teachers at Cooley and Sossaman Middle Schools were selected as finalists for Most Dedicated STEM Teacher.

    Higley High’s engineering program offers dual credit through the internationally acclaimed Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Students learn engineering skills on industry standard computers and programs, and have access to a state-of-the-art engineering lab, complete with a 3D printer and wind turbine simulator.

    Classes are taught by two former engineers: Robert Frederick and Jason Sixkiller, who together launched Higley’s engineering Career and Technical Education program five years ago.

    Students who have completed the three-course study are eligible to take the state Career and Technical Education certification test. Higley’s students scored at the top of all Arizona students who completed the test last year.

    Winners of the Super Bowl Committee’s STEM Superhero Awards will be announced at a ceremony in November at the Arizona Science Center.

  • Attendance - A Reminder
     
     Parents, please keep in mind that all students must be signed out to leave during the day for any reason. This includes students who drive themselves. If a student will be leaving early for a medical appointment, a parent must come into school to sign them out. The parent can stop by the office in the morning to do so, even if the student will be leaving later in the day. All students may sign themselves back in upon returning to school. We appreciate your help in ensuring student safety and accountability.

  • Reminder: Parking Permits 
     
    All cars in the student parking lot must have a parking permit for this year.  We will begin booting cars that are parked without a parking permit; which means that your car will not be drivable until you have purchased a $50 permit.
    Please ensure that you get this taken care of, as permits are now overdue.

  • Parentvue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
